River Walk Crochet Duster

Elegant and airy, this crochet duster is perfect for layering over dresses or a tee shirt and jeans. An all-over leaf lace pattern is made up of mostly double crochet and chain stitches, making it very intuitive to work. Sleeves feature simple shell lace patterns and are worked seamlessly from the armholes. Finished with a trellis-style fringe that adds a nice decorative touch and gives an opportunity to practice another popular craft: macramé.
